There’s Something Wrong with These Afghan Refugees…And It’s Actually a Legitimate Health Crisis

Townhall: Joe Biden and his team love to tout the airlift talking points. It was the best, most awesome evacuation ever. They got over 100,000 people out, guys. The problem is no one cares. No one cares because Joe Biden left Americans behind in Afghanistan. We all knew this was going to happen. The Biden team knew as well. It’s why they peddled this talking point so hard—and why—again—no one cared. You could have ushered out three times as many people but if you leave Americans behind, it’s moot. There are security concerns as well. How are we vetting these people and what do we do when someone is flagged? We don’t have a treaty with Afghanistan. We can’t send them back. Yet, before we can even get to the national security issues here, there’s a health crisis. There’s been a measles outbreak at Fort McCoy (via Fox News):

The White House said on Friday that the U.S. has temporarily suspended flights of Afghan evacuees into the country after four measles cases among recent arrivals — in a move it described as “out of an abundance of caution.”

  1. Measles? Now we’re supposed to be terrified of measles?

    But not the TB and parasites galore coming in over the southern border?

    I don’t buy that this is why flights were shut down.

  2. “out of an abundance of caution”

    Whenever they deploy that puke-inducing bureaucrat jargon, it means they f—ked up bad, don’t know how to fix it and you’re going to pay the price.

  3. I’m not worried about the measles it the terrorists, rapists, honor killers and radical voters I’m concerned about!

  4. If democRATs have shown us anything, it is that they love a good crisis!
    Don’t have a good crisis, by God they’ll make one!
    Now they are truly playing with Pandora’s box with a whole host of crap from Fouchi’s Wu-Flu to a whole plethora of diseases from Turdistan unvetted aliens to anything and everything running across our Southern border! To really get at the root of the issues, maybe we should be treating the sickness knowns as democRATz!

  5. I’ll take a measles infected Afghanistan any day over a friggen DC politian. No matter how you spin it the problem is in DC.

  6. Frigging General Mills (leftist guv ME) is bringing 100 of them to our state with the help of that snake pit organization, Catholic Charities.
    I emailed her and told her if a terrorist attack happens here she has blood on her hands.
    We already have more people on welfare and social security than we do working people.
    Now we add more foreign freeloaders with the thousands of Africans she’s brought in over the past few years.
    Thank God we can carry concealed and openly here.

  7. Measles isn’t a minor thing. While the disease itself in most cases is relatively mild, it can have very serious long-term effects. One of the most serious is that measles can suppress the immune system for up to two years. Most childhood deaths following measles come about from secondary infections not suppressed by the immune system. Afghanistan has one of the highest worldwide incidences of death by measles due to low immunization rates.

    Thanks Joe! Your zeal to force Americans to vaccinate against Covid has caused you to overlook basic public health measures like health vetting and quarantining of incoming migrants.

    Good move. You’ll probably win a Nobel Prize.

  8. Buck, so why are they letting them wander off the military bases where young American personnel all have had their MMRs?

    Anyway, a lot of things can become serious, even deadly. Including driving to work.

  9. The four horsemen of the apocalypse are War, Famine, Pestilence and Death.
    democRATz are now “Ridin With Biden” as the fifth horseman known as Disinformation with his bride Miss Information!

  10. Next they will tell us that if we had measles in the past, or were previously vaccinated for measles, we will need an additional “booster” shot to protect us from this new variant. Dr. Fauchi told us so!

  11. According to the CDC, the death rate in the US from measles currently, is 1-2 per 1000. This is higher than the Covid death rate. When I was a kid, prior to the vaccine in 1963, every year there was another outbreak of measles, but they never shut down the schools, let alone the whole economy. And I never saw anyone wear a mask.

  12. Measles is THE most contagious virus. So if one gets measles, every one around them that was not vaccinated (MMR) gets it. Luckily, most have gotten this shot.

  13. My sister and I had the measles when we were kids. My sister was sick for a few days and I was sick for a month! Go figure.

  14. While supplying the measles shot, why not include the “mystery Jab” every American has been commanded to take. Oh, wait you don’t want to kill these migrants, just keep them alive to endanger Americas forever. Be sure to thank a democrat.

  15. Next up, POLIO!

    Good God folks, we are descending into the middle ages, except with Smaht Fones and less intelligent masses.

  16. These are Psalm 91 days. You better know God, personally. There is no way to keep up with all the diseases and terrorist threats being unleashed on the United States thanks to a “refugees” invasion coordinated by the CCP and their puppet Biden.

    Psalm 91. The Holy Bible NKJV

    1. He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

    2. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”

    3. Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence.

    4. He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

    5. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day,

    6. Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

    7. A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you.

    8. Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked.

    9. Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place,

    10. No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;

    11. For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.

    12. In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.

    13. You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

    14. “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.

    15. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.

    16. With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”
